The Stolen White Elephant, version 2


Published April 21, 2012


LibriVox recording of The Stolen White Elephant, by Mark Twain. Read by John Greenman.

"The Stolen White Elephant" was written by Mark Twain and published in 1882. In it, an Indian elephant, en route from India to Britain as a gift to the Queen, disappears in New Jersey. The local police department goes into high gear to solve the mystery but it all comes to a tragic end. Twain's satirical look at the police and newspaper worlds of the 1880's illustrates some of the more outrageous proclivities of each. (Summary by Wikipedia & John Greenman)
